A police officer, Charles, is shot by accident in a robbery by a youth, becoming sterile as a result.

One of these young people, Chuck, is suffering from the breakup of his parents’ marriage. He suspects his mother of having an affair because she says she has to work every night as a nurse at the hospital, but he’s unable to detect clear evidence of his suspicion.
